Heading into WrestleMania 37 season, WWE turned a top superstar to face on last night’s RAW. Spoiler alert, WWE has changed course with Braun Strowman as his character is once again a face.
Braun Strowman Character Changed
As the WWE Universe inches closer to WrestleMania 37, storylines continue to gain momentum. One big match for the flagship event is in the making, and that would be Braun Strowman versus Shane McMahon.
You know @shanemcmahon
I would make you eat your words for wasting my time … but I think I’d rather shove my first DOWN YOUR THROAT!!! NO ONE calls me stupid!!!!

With that said, a program of this nature needs a bonafide face and a heel. Most may have caught the slight change last night on RAW, as the Monster Among Men has made the transition to babyface in this feud.
Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer chimed in on the events that unraveled during Monday Night RAW. He noted that Braun was turned to face for his angle with Shane-O-Mac, as the boss’s son turned heel.
Heel Versus Face Program Needed
According to Meltzer, Creative was looking for a way to turn McMahon into a heel for this storyline. This is why Shane was being so mean to Strowman, and calling Braun “stupid”. The idea is to turn McMahon into a massive heel so the fans don’t cheer him during this program.
With the Big Show in AEW now, could Braun be the next big guy to flip flop between heel and face every so often? Only time will tell.
Speaking of WrestleMania 37, more information on tickets has recently been revealed.
